'01 Ranger Climate Control Problems
Maybe someone here can give me some guidance -
Having problems with my '01 Ranger (V6 4.0L) climate control. When the A/C is on (or compressor off for that matter), I get too much heat in the blend coming thru the vents (e.g. when temp control is at 12 o'clock, WAYYY too hot, only cools down when switch is turned to 10-8 o'clock). The result is not enough variability in cooling, not like it was for the last 2 years.
The A/C seems to be OK itself, very cold when temp switch is cranked all the way to the "cold" side.
I have been to the local dealer and a tech has verified that something is wrong, but four trips to get the problem fixed has resulted in nothing. The last trip got me a replaced controller cable, but the problem didn't go away. I am still under warranty until August.
Am I screwed? Is it too big of a job for them to want to take on under warranty (take out dash etc.), so maybe they are trying to blow me off? Should I give them another shot? There is another dealer in the area, but I'm loath to go in to a new place and have them start all over on this problem cold turkey.
Thanks for any advice or kind words...
